MOSCOW, November 6. /TASS/. Russia’s Space Defense Force is keeping track of the Kosmos-1441 satellite, which is about to leave the orbit within hours, Space Defense Force spokesman Alexey Zolotukhin told TASS.
“Analysis indicates that fragments of the Kosmos-1441 satellite will leave the near-Earth orbit on November 8, 2014 over the Pacific Ocean. The final date and site where the fragments will be dumped may change under the influence of external factors,” he said.
Space Defense Force specialists are maintaining stable control of every single orbit.
Also, Zolotukhin confirmed the dumping of fragments of another space satellite — Kosmos 1939 on October 29 — over the Caribbean.
The Soviet Union launched the Kosmos-1441 satellite on February 16, 1983 with a Vostok rocket. Its service life expired in February 1984.
